I'm having a problem where my internet searches are almost all getting redirected to other websites (some advertising, but sometimes it gets redirected to even google). It's happening on both IE and Firefox. Here's a list of the anti-virus programs and such that I already run on a daily basis:
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Ad Aware
They haven't been able to fix the problem.
I just ran Hitman Pro 3.5 and it's saying my explorer.exe and winlogon.exe files are trojans (located in C:/windows and C:/windows/system32 respectively). Although I understand these files are vital to my operating system running smoothly. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
